G-20: Let's Make a Deal

Determined to show there's an upside to having many cooks in the kitchen, G-20 leaders appeared close to an agreement this morning on pouring new funds into turning around the global recession. For starters, the International Monetary Fund is expected to get $500 billion in additional funding for weak nations and leaders have allocated $250 billion to "stimulate the global economy," the BBC reports. The G-20 have also outlined ways to impose sanctions on tax havens using a "name and shame" approach.
